Oman Air has been named as the World’s Leading Airline – Economy Class at the World Travel Awards grand final gala ceremony, in Anguilla.

The ceremony, presented by award-winning actress Vivica Fox at the CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa, was attended by hundreds of dignitaries, international media, and government and industry leaders.

Following the awards, Paul Gregorowitsch, chief executive of Oman Air, commented, “Oman Air is delighted to accept this award. It is powerful recognition of our outstanding Economy Class service and once again confirms Oman Air as the airline of first choice.

“Earlier this year, the World Travel Awards named Oman Air as Best Business Class Airline – Middle East and Best Economy Class Airline – Middle East. To now take the global Economy Class title shows that not only the World Travel Awards judges, but also air travellers around the world, continue to be extremely impressed with what Oman Air offers. I would like to thank them all, on behalf of Oman Air, for their support.”

He added, “And it is particularly satisfying to be able to accept this award at a time when we have just launched our latest expansion programme.

“This will see us operate more aircraft to more destinations than ever before. It will also allow us to delight our customers by making even more improvements to our Business Class and Economy Class cabins. We are taking the best and making it even better!”

Oman Air’s growth strategy was launched in November 2014 and will see the airline expand its fleet from 30 to around 50 aircraft by 2018. The first of 15 Boeing 737s and three Airbus A330s touched down at Muscat International airport recently. Six Boeing 787 Dreamliners will also be delivered from late 2015.

The new aircraft offer brand new Business Class and Economy Class cabins. Each Economy Class seat provides exceptional comfort and features a one-piece composite seat back structure, a high seat back pivot and articulating bottom pan, and a four-way adjustable headrest.  Meanwhile, the 10.6-inch seatback LCD screen offers access to the same IFE options as those enjoyed in Business Class. A USB port is mounted on the seatback screen, allowing customers to charge mobile phones, and seats also have a PC power port.
